So my host wants me to send them a letter or a fax message with my signature on it to cancel the contract of my server....they say its for "security reasons".
Seems ridiculous, and it is a very slow process as they are based in another country.
I havent signed anywhere so they dont know how my sign even looks like, I just paid with Paypal, and in Paypal they have the authority to take out money every month, but I could just cancel that from Paypal.
The reason I am not just cancelling the subscription in Paypal is because I have 2 servers with them, and I want to keep one and cancel the other.
Can someone tell me how to convince them to just cancel the server without the need to fax or mail?
On the other hand, can someone please recommend reliable online service where I can send international fax to them?
Just write it on paper, scan it and email them the picture. It should not matter for them if it was pulled from the fax machine or the printer. Although in some countries something coming from the fax machine is considered to be "a document".
its not a matter of they need a signature to shut it down, I'd say its moreso that if you complain about it later that your server is down they can show you your signature with a statement declaring you asked em to shut it down.

Reason: added a bit
There are online services that will send the fax for you if you just scan it to your computer - this may be an option for you
